The attack, which occurred after President Putin's electoral landslide, is being investigated as terrorism. The concert hall was hosting a performance by the Russian rock band Picnic. Videos showed men with assault rifles shooting at people, and some reports suggest the attackers fled before authorities arrived. At least 11 suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack.
